Today’s featured proposal comes to you from the gorgeous Northwest Maui Beach! Read all about Dillon and Emily’s unforgettable proposal below!

Gorgeous Northwest Maui Beach Proposal

Dillon wanted beautiful scenery for his proposal to sweetheart Emily. We talked about the pros and cons of a Haleakala proposal versus a beach proposal. In the end, Dillon loved the idea of doing a day of sightseeing followed by a walk on the beach where he could propose before a romantic dinner.


Dillon asked for beach recommendations nearby their hotel in Kaanapali and was drawn to the look of this wide-open beach. Our associate Amber would be waiting for them towards the entrance, pretending to be another beachgoer. As they passed by her, she would discreetly get into place to capture the big moment.


Originally, we planned to use the left side of the beach. However when Amber arrived, that area was crowded. She quickly texted Dillon that he should go to the right instead and placed their orchid flower circle so he knew exactly where to go.

Amber’s quick thinking ensured that Dillon and Emily’s engagement happened on their own section of beach. Plus, it was a great reminder of why we love using long beaches that have ample space.

Emily was thrilled at Dillon’s beautifully planned beach proposal and was even more surprised that he had a photographer there!


At first, it was gorgeous and sunny on the beach. A raincloud came by and the sky got dark. We had a few sprinkles and suddenly an amazing double rainbow appeared. It was the perfect time to head to our second location, where we escaped the rain and ended with a sunset dance along the shoreline.
